Founder of Landlord Action and Brand Ambassador for Hamilton Fraser, Paul Shamplina, has won ‘Best Seminar Speaker’ at The National Landlord Investment Show Awards 2019, after receiving nearly 40 percent of the overall votes.
The National LIS Awards took place on 21st November 2019 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane. The evening brought together more than 400 major players from the worlds of finance, law, tax, property development and insurance, celebrating companies working at the top of their game and demonstrating their individual efforts to go above and beyond to ensure that the PRS continues to function, regardless of the backdrop.
As well as the eleven award winners selected by the expert judging panel, a special category gave landlords and property professionals the opportunity to vote for the ‘Best Seminar Speaker’ throughout 2019. Of 1083 landlords who voted, Paul Shamplina received 423 of the votes.
Tracey Hanbury, co-director of the Awards and the National Landlord Investment Show, commented: “We were absolutely delighted that Paul won this award. He is so committed, professional and genuinely wants to help landlords. The feedback we receive from our landlords is that Paul’s seminars are always very insightful, informative and provide great education.”
The night’s proceedings were hosted by comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw, who even had the audience laughing with his impression of Paul.
On winning the award, Paul Shamplina says: “I am honoured and privileged to have received this award as direct recognition from the people I try to help day in and day out. I still have the same passion and energy, to campaign on behalf of landlords and letting agents, that I had 19 years ago when I set up Landlord Action, because I believe in what I do.
These past couple of years have posed unprecedented challenges for landlords due to changes in legislation, which means I have been busier than ever. This year I’ve carried out as much media work (currently filming the sixth series for Channel 5’s Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlord) and as many seminars and educational courses as I can possibly fit in. In addition, I head up the educational arm of Hamilton Fraser and have co-written my second book ‘The Landlords’ Friend 2019’ with Kate Faulkner. If everything I do helps one more landlord run their business more professionally then I’m happy. I’m sure I will be just as busy, if not busier, in 2020”
